LAOUT'LOR v. CHAPMAN.

Trie following case was heard at Timaru court a few 'days ago when E. W. Bachelor, carpenter, of Duvauchelle Bay, claimed from Wm. Chapman, farmer, Cave, M alleged to be owing to him for travelling time, under the South Canterbury Builders' Award

Mr W. D. Campbell appeared for plaintiff, and Mr Ulrich for defendant

Mr Campbell outlined the case for plaintiff, and gave the substance of his evidence which was taken at Akaroa. This was to the effect that he had agreed to make additions to defendant-

house at Cave, at a wage of Is 6d per hour. At the conclusion of the work, he put in for his fare from Duvauchelle Bay to Cave and back. Defendant refused to pay, and plaintiff's claim was based on the clause in the South Canterbury Award relating to country work.

Mr Ulrich applied for a nonsuit. He argued that an agreement had been made that plaintiff would do the work, the wages to be Is 6d per hour, but that no arrangements had been made as to the fare, and lie submitted that as the award stipulated that unless arrangement be made with regard to the fare, [defendant would have to pay his own fare.

John of the Labour I Department, Timaru, said it was the custom of tradespeople when a man was changing from one industrial district to another, to make all arrangements regarding transport. The magistrate non-suited plaintiff. Defendant had intended counter-claiming for £10 for board but Mr Ulrich withdrew the claim.

In regard to counter-claim for £10, this should have been for board and money overpaid when settling up with Bachelor. Chapman was lead to understand that iunder the Builder's Award, plaintiff was entitled to expenses. Later he considered this was incorrect or he would not have put in a counter claim.
